Blackpool has been famous for a long time for it's trams. Like nearly all British cities the place had an extensive network stemming from the Victorian era.
In the years following the second world war every British city tore up its tracks rather than invest in their cities infrastructure : except Blackpool.
These days there is only one route, but it does go right along the front of the city by the sea, before diverting a little in land at the Northern end to reach Fleetwood.
Whilst slow and lumbering, they make for an excellent way to see the city, and as virtually everything you would want to use in Blackpool is strung out along the miles of front it is very useful as well.
Just one little tip ; make sure you board one of the double decker trams, it imporoves the view.
